Wiz Khalifa – “The Thrill”

One of Wiz Khalifa’s earliest breakout songs “The Thrill” is now available on all streaming platforms. The song is a sample of the Australian indie band Empire Of The Sun’s “Walking on a Dream”.  According to the Press Release. The band stated “As this track was breaking for us around the globe we kept hearing undercurrents of Wiz’s version. ‘Walking On A Dream’ is a song that morphs and transcends so many emotions and musical plains that it’s great to hear it alive in another world, Wiz’s world.”

 

“‘The Thrill’ is a really special song to me because I seen that one grow from the ground up. I remember being at a low key show at a college and one of the kids told me about the song and he said ‘man you’ll be that dude if you sample the song.’ So I immediately went home, started thinking of some bars, went to the studio and recorded it. And it was one of those songs that we took on the road and made our own videos for, and performed it, and the world loved it. And I’m happy that it’s available on all streaming platforms and that people can enjoy it the way that they need to now.”
